Safety and security features
Safety and security features are essential in choosing a mobility scooter. Merits Health is known for its efforts in keeping their products safe for its customers. The S542 alone has the following features to keep you anxiety-free while on the road:

- Electromagnetic braking system. Releasing the control lever will trigger the scooter to slow down until it stops completely.

- Speed control dial. You can conveniently regulate the maximum speed of the scooter from 1 to 4 mph using the speed control dial on the right side of the control panel. Turn the dial clockwise to increase the speed and turn it counterclockwise to decrease the speed. Merits Health recommends that you set the maximum speed to its lowest configuration when driving in a crowded place.
- Battery gauge. This lightweight scooter has a battery gauge with color-coded levels to help you determine the battery’s charge status. When the needle is in the green area, your scooter is still adequately charged. If it’s in the red area, your scooter needs recharging.
